Canada OCs get-together 2017

13 OC’s along with their spouses and guests met at Bombay Palace Brampton Ontario. The food was sumptuous, the energy exhilarating, the atmosphere kinetic as every one was eager to catch up and rekindle old relationships.

The local channel blessed the event by showing Tamasha, starring Ranbir Kapoor the same day which shows BCS for more than 20 minutes.

John McLaughlin drove more than 6 hrs to share his stories and reminisce about his time and exploits at BCS. Jal Boga, healthy and hearty full decked in OC regalia talked about his time at school.

In the 17 years that I have been organizing our events, it is interesting to see boys just graduating from university and now becoming movers and shakers in the corporate world, getting married and becoming parents.

After dinner, the young at heart, headed to clubs to dance, some headed home. As usual Gurpreet invited us to a classic Punjabi chai and Provender, Gurpreet’s dad who was born in Simla, shared some amazing stories.

Two female guests remarked to me that how come all the guys are so cheerful. I told them it is the water we drink, the common ethos we live by of overcome evil with good.

SPOTLIGHT: Inder Singh Dhillon

Today is a proud day for our community as Inder Singh’s name is plastered on every newspaper in Canada. Inder graduated from BCS, then went to Windsor and graduated with an MBA from York (Schulich). He was the president of his class. He got a job at E&Y and is now being posted to Dubai. Schulich has his picture and achievements in every newspaper in Canada. I saw his picture in the paper this morning on the train and called him to congratulate him. Inder I am going to miss your friendship and the time you were here and our tea chats. Sorry I missed your wedding but all the best.

Anyway see you guys on April 25th for cocktail and drinks. Take care

QUOTED from  http://media.schulich.yorku.ca/alumni/schulich-graduate-named-poster-boy-for-professional-and-academic-successes-by-indian-newspaper/  :

The son of a farmer, Inder Dhillon (MBA ’13) was raised in a remote village in India. Today, the recent Schulich MBA graduate is being called a “poster boy” for his professional and academic successes by India’s third largest newspaper, the Hindustan Times.

“It’s a privilege to be recognized in the local communities back in India,” said Inder in an email about being featured in the Times. “I hope the article touches many youngsters that are aspiring to study/work abroad, and hope they take something positive out of my experience.”

“Always a sharp student”, Inder first travelled to Canada to complete a degree in professional studies and business administration at the University of Windsor in 2006.

Upon graduation, he was “recruited by Wells Fargo Bank, amongst top 3 Banks in the US, and got promoted as the youngest Senior Credit Manager.”

OC [Canada] Dinner 4th October 2014 / Bombay Palace Brampton

On July 19, 2014, Malcolm Niblett (C45), John Mclaughlin (I47), Deepinder Bains (C70), Gerald Godinho (L83), Tanvir and Sameer Sodhi (L04,06) set out for Boldt Castle on Heart Island in the United States.

John drove for 8 hrs to get to Whitby, and insisting on driving another 3 hrs the next day to Ganonoque where we took the boat. My wife is always blown away by an 82 year old, a 47 year old and two guys in their 20’s talking about our times at school. Malcolm joined us in Kingston. I asked him which house did he graduate from. His answer was ‘was there another house other than Curzon?’

The Thousand Islands is just beautiful and we were all impressed with all the homes and boats and crossing the international line on the lake. We all had a great time and people already started asking when is the next big trip. Please see the OCA Canada facebook page for pics.

Next year in July we will be going to Stratford for the festival and theatre.
